  • Description

    PRESIDENT'S KENNEDY'S WIFE JACQUELINE AND HER FOUR-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER CAROLINE ARRIVED AT RAVELLO, ITALY, AUG 8, FOR A PRIVATE HOLIDAY. MRS KENNEDY'S HOLIDAY HOME IS A 900-YEAR-OLD VILLAGE OWNED BY HER SISTER, PRINCESS LEE RADZIWILL, AND HER BROTHER-IN-LA, PRINCE STANISLAS.

    MRS KENNEDY, WEARING A WHITE SLEEVELESS TWO-PIECE SUMMER DRESS WITH BLACK POLKA DOTS, SMILED AND WAVED TO LOCAL PEOPLE WELCOMING HER. CAROLINE, WALKING WITH HER, ALSO WAVED HAPPILY.

    SHORTLY BEFORE HER ARRIVAL, TWO OF RAVELLO'S FOUR POLICEMEN CARRIED A LARGE AMPHORA - THE TWO-HANDLED VESSEL USED BY ROMANS TO STORE WINE OR GRAIN-FILLED WITH WATER LILIES INTO THE VILLA - RAVELLO'S GIFT TO AMERICA'S FIRST LADY. THE AMPHORA, FOUND ON THE SEABED AT PAESTUM, NEAR THE WORLD WAR TWO BEACHES AT SALERNO, HAD DECORATED THE HALLWAY OF THE MAYOR'S HOUSE.

    MRS KENNEDY FLEW IN FROM NEW YORK TO A LOCAL AIRFIELD AND THEN DROVE THE LAST 25 MILES ALONG THE BEAUTIFUL AMALFI COAST ROAD TO RAVELLO.

    TWO HOURS AFTER ARRIVING, CAROLINE WENT TO THE BEACH IN A BIKINI, BUT DID NOT VENTURE OUT FAR - THE WATERS OFF RAVELLO ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR SHARKS.
